Last term, after doing very well representing Glenaeon in the ISD carnival, an extremely strong and enthusiastic group of athletes qualified and represented at the annual AICES athletics carnival, with many achieving personal bests and making our school immensely proud.
Our congratulations also goes to the following U12 and U13 athletes who qualified for the AICES carnival: Ignatius C who qualified in Javelin, Matai J who entered the 3000m and triple Jump events, Sophia B who qualified in 400m, our U13 4x 100 meter relay girls, Sophia L, Anabelle B, Maya H and Matthia M who dominated at ISD with a win and to Theo M who just missed out on qualifying for CIS in the U13s Javelin. A stellar performance by these young athletes.
A special congratulations goes to Matthia M from Yr 7 who did exceptionally well at this meet, not only winning her pet event the long jump, but obtaining a new AICES record of 4.91m for the U13 girls!
Along with qualifying for the long jump, Matthia also placed third in the U13s 100m and was eligible for the triple jump and the 200m at the CIS regional carnival which was held at the end of last term.
She came up against some tough competition and on one of those 34-degree days, sporting a black arm band in memory of Jonas she finished just shy of a place.
We are so proud of Matthia, and all our athletes who competed at such a high level. Well done!
